New Year's Eve workouts were:

Get Healthy U TV - Walk, Sweat & Sculpt: Upper Body - 33 minutes;
Pilates Nest - Short & Sweet Pilates - 15 minutes

I do like this Get Healthy U TV walk - Dana is right, the music isn't great, but it doesn't drive me crazy and it at least keeps the beat. The toning feels like real toning to me - not like Leslie toning, which just feels like filler.

My New Year's resolution is just to add back more pilates to my workouts. Very vague and flexible...

Mercy - a new decade! Who remembers the Y2K scare?

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!

Yesterday, in addition to my formal workout - DD and I took another walk. We have walked quite a bit this break - I ended up with over 12K steps. I think it is easier for teens to talk when walking b/c they don't have to make eye contact. We haven't had many deep conversations on our walks, but at least we are communicating and there is no phone! LOL. Maybe I can convince her to go again today. I wish my doggie was able to walk longer distances, but w/ her arthritis, she just can't and my other doggie doesn't really like to walk, she'd rather stay at home and play ball.

Anyway - today was:

Trifecta Pilates - January 2020 workout - bend and stretch - this was LONG one - as in over an hour, but I enjoyed the slower pace and attention to detail. I can't always set aside this much time, but today worked for me.

So far, I like the membership site. And, in fact, I may change my plans and focus on that instead of yoga. I think Pilates may help me more in terms of rebuilding strength, stability and balance. But, we shall see!

I also did - Pahla B - Hot 100 Day #1 - including a warm-up, cool-down and finisher.

So, my plan for the month is either Pilates or Yoga with a Hot 100 workout and as much walking and informal exercise I can fit in.

I hope everyone has a good day and start to the new year!

Donna

I took a look at Jessica's challenge for Day 1 and decided I didn't want to repeat it. I wasn't all that into the FW challenge at this point either, so I'm sticking with what I like!

Nice first workouts of the New Year, everyone!

Carol, I remember that! LOL!

New Year's Day workouts were

Get Healthy U TV: 1 Mile Power Walk - 15 minutes & Lower Body Shred - 10 minutes; Pilates Nest - Gentle Neck Friendly Pilates - 16 minutes

I think this month I will focus on Get Healthy U TV workouts for strength and light cardio, and Pilates Nest for pilates. I can tell I've been off the pilates bandwagon this past month. I've lost a lot of core strength. It takes me so long to make progress in this area and almost no time to lose my hard fought gains in strength. Duh! I know better than to lay off the pilates. I've put together a rotation of Pilates Nest & Get Healthy U TV for January. We'll see how well I do.

Donna - I agree. I think my son talks more when we walk. Our dogs would love a walk every day, but we have had a lot of wind lately, and I hate walking in the wind.

Y2K - my ex was a bank president and I can tell you that they (the bankers) were plenty nervous. He was stockpiling water, etc. at our house...

Hello,

Shaped by Faith: Standing Pilates

I plan to get a walk in later too since it's going to be around 50 and sunny!

Carol, I remember stocking up on bottled water and non-perishable foods too! Everyone thought something catastrophic was going to happen at midnight.
